This is the first time I have entered Kort in a whole trial! I am excited, he had a great practice last night & I am feeling pretty good about our communication & uderstanding of each other. It is not perfect but we are becoming more & more of a team.
He needs 1 Q in each Standard, Gamblers, & Jumpers to move into Advanced, & get his Agility Dog of Canada, & Starters Games Dog of Canada titles.
I have been much more careful warming Kort up & cooling him down after competing then I was before. Kort had that weird pain last year, we think in his neck, that had him screaming!
One thing that I have done is to buy him a Back On Track jacket. Most of our agility group has one for their dogs & they are awesome. Check out the link to read more. The jacket basically helps to provide more circulation to inflammed areas as well as keeping the muscles warm before & after competeing, which helps prevent & heal injuries.
Kort fell asleep with a smile on his face last night shortly after I put it on him :)
Heres the picture to prove it!......
